Season 5 – Week 10-16 – Catch up with Gerhard – again

Oh my, where has the time flown? Once again, while I am in the middle of writing my latest masterpiece on the top active players in the league and I am summoned to drop everything and get a summery out the door before the fans begin to riot!

So I have 6 weeks of action and 12 games to catch up with and I only have about 10 minutes to get it done before my party resumes. Lets get going! As before, I will focus on the individual teams rather then on the matches themselves.

Brimstone Flayers

The Flayers have only been in action once since the Cleavers tore them apart in the opening round of the Spite Challenge. After licking their wounds for a number of weeks they took a trip to visit Damage Inc at home. After looking like they would be the first team to lost to the Chaos pact muppets, they left with a 3-2 victory. Now the team is fully healed they are hopeful that they can continue the good form and win South Division.

Damage Inc

Damage Inc are now the only team to have not won any points this season! They have been in action twice in the past six weeks against the bloody Loren Rangers and the previously discussed Flayers. Based on my introduction for this team you can guess that they had a wonderful time and picked up the points they deserved… I know they place a lot of their performance issues on their Troll and to be honest they might have a point! Their Troll is one of the stupidest creatures I have ever seen step foot onto a Blood Bowl Pitch.

Grunhelm Gemcutters

The Gemcutters have finally made their return to the HDWSBBBL. After a unbelievable wait the short and angry ones returned to face the Middenhein Manhunters and then the Tutsbone Jackles. Against the Manhunters they suffered early on from a lack of speed but pulled something back near the end to force a draw. A similar situation happened against the Jackles where after a bit of a tussle they ended up drawing with the lords of the desert. Despite the Gemcutters hanging around near the top of South Division, I am still unconvinced about how far they will go. I need to see more of this team before I can make my mind up.

Lustria Leapers

The Leapers have almost been impressive since I last watched them. Although they have only played one game against the Manhunters the clearly dominated their more experienced opponents and defeated them with an impressive ease. They are also lined up to take the South Division Championship assuming they can overcome the Loren Rangers

Middenhein Manhunters

The Manhuters continue to suck! They have lost to the Leapers in a game they should have had no problems winning and they threw away victory against the Gemcutters. I am a bit concerned for their players though as the stress appears to be getting to them. Their Star Thrower Ludd was seen to be running around in circles during the game against the Leapers and Lord Havlock was forced to bench him the next game! Speaking of Havlock, I hear that he is on thin ice over in the Manhunters camp. Word is that he could soon be replaced by the Janitor! If the Manhunters management is reading this then please let that happen. It would be a great late Christmas present.

Orcland Cleavers

The mighty Cleavers hit a bit of a snag recently. After decimating all before them and climbing to the top of North Division they stumbled against a bunch of Elves! I guess the nightmares of their games against the Rangers from last season returned when they took on the Wee Tree Fellows as they could only manage a draw. I was impressed with the last minute fouling though as it sent a few not-so-Pro Elves off to the apothecaries – That’s always a good thing.

Tail Slammers

It looks like the bubble has burst on the form of the Tail Slammers. it’s about bloody time, I was getting worried that I would have to be writing about yet another victory from the furry puss bags however they could only draw with the Wee Tree Fellows and staggered when it came to the crunch game against the Shadows. They are still in with a small chance of winning North Division but hopefully they will become the next victims of the Halflings during their 30th game and we won’t be hearing from them again!

Teotigua Predators

Its obvious my hunting trips have been getting to this little dinos as they have been in hiding for a few months. I have been trying to track them down with no luck. It turned out I needn’t have bothered to continue my quest to exterminate them from the league as during their match against the Halflings they had two Sarus die on them! It was a happy night in the Rockstein household I can tell you.

The Brewers

The Brewers are starting to get a grip on the game at last. After some impressive form they slipped up against the Halflings and became another team to lose to the 3-foot terrors. There where claims that someone had spiked their drink (hopefully not their own management) as they did appear to be a bit under the weather during their game. They are out of the running for the Championship V but they might have a chance in the Cleaver Cup

The Innsmouth Shadows

The Shadows upset me the other week when they announced that this was their last season on the HDWSBBL! I don’t know what I am going to do without the weekly ranting of JoJo. He is one of the only “sane” voices around here and we will miss him and his team! They had a disappointing draw against the Tail Slammers but they did have a cracking game against the Halflings in which they handed the midgets their biggest loss to date! It was a pleasure watching the Werewolves tear through all in their path although I wish they hadn’t spent so long picking the feathers from their teeth, that is what the half-time break is for (along with getting a bollocking from your coach). They are currently the strongest contenders for winning South Division. We will find out in a few short days if they can do it when they face the Cleavers.

The Loren Rangers

The Rangers have been very quiet over this last period as they have only graced us with their presence the once where they defeated Damage Inc. We are not entirely sure what they have been up too since then but they need to get their game gear back on soon otherwise they will struggle to catch up.

The Tutsbone Jackles

The Jackles are now only one game away from completing all their games in South Division. After a draw against the Gemcutters ended any dreams of qualifying for the Championship V the Jackles are now focused on finishing as far away from the bottom of the division as possible to ensure they have a good spot in the Cleaver Cup. Their final game is against Damage Inc…

We Tree Fellows

After a few inactive weeks the Fellows have been busy. They have drawn against the Cleavers and the Slammers and managed to pick up their first win of the season against the Halflings! The not-so-Pro Elves will need to pick up the pace just a little bit more if they want to win their first HDWSBBL Championship in what is rumoured to be their final season in the HDWSBBL.

Whereinthehellarewe Tribe

I must admit, until recently I was under the impression that that Halflings where just little boys who had not grown up yet and not in fact an actual offshoot of the human race! Now that I have been corrected I can start another set of height related jokes! They have taken part in a fair number of games recently, They came up short against the Shadows, stepped up to the challenge of the Brewers, cowered in fear against the Predators and run as fast as their little legs could carry them against the WTF. One victory in four may not be the best tally but for a Halfling team that is pretty impressive. They are still looking up at the rest of the Division from the bottom of North Division but seeing as they spend most of their waking day looking up they should certainly not be counted out.

Gotta go now, the ladies are calling
